3 garlic cloves, pressed
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger root
1 tsp honey (or brown sugar)

1/2 tsp turmeric powder
smooth dough made with 375 g flour + 160 ml water (more or less, just make a smooth and not too sticky dough) or wonton wrappers
In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and stir until well mixed. Place filling onto each wonton skin and fold it into desired shape.
Line bottom of a bamboo steamer with baking paper paper (or a Chinese cabbage leaf). Place dumplings on it and put steamer into a wok or a pot. The wok should be filled with water just below the bottom of the steamer.
